There is a seven letter word that begins with the letter M and rhymes with carriage that I have avoided thinking about for many, many years.  When other girls were picking their colors, fantasizing over Mr. Right, and designing their invitations you could find me running in the exact opposite direction.

Don’t get me wrong.  Marriage is great, grand, wonderful, amazing, and (should be) very permanent.  I didn’t even want to think marriage until I knew who I was as an individual, could take care of myself, had (preferably) graduated from school, etc.  So I just kept putting it on the back burner.  Well, not even the back burner.  It was more like the idea was still in the freezer waiting for the day I would take it out and let it begin to thaw.

As a result, I tended to avoid really dating anyone.  Sure, I went on dates and ended up with more guy friends than girls for a while, but I made sure to push anyone away who had anything more on their mind.  The only trouble with this philosophy is that I’ve taken my independence, seen more of the world than most, and even got my degree.  I realized early last year that, other than the lack of a guy, I was running out of excuses.
The reason for the thought now?  Last night, my significant other of the past 6 months proceeded to measure the ring finger on my left hand.  I am excited, happy, and totally in love with the kid.  I’m just still shifting all of my paradigms.
Yours Ponderingly,
Miss Pevensie
